Harvest Report: 2012, the historic vintage

The 2012 vintage is amongst the three best of the last 50 years for Brazil. In the two main regions, Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina, the quality level of the grapes is exceptional and there is also quantity to sell (696m kg, ie 327m bottles).

“This is the best harvest that I’ve witnessed during my 30 years in Brazil”, says Chilean winemaker Carlos Abarzua, director of viticulture at ABE (Brazilian Association of Enologists). It’s promising for the future as this is the Brazilian “momentum” with two major worldwide events taking place in the country within the next 2-4 years; the World Cup and the Olympics.
